Radical Open Feet! After the success of our Sun Ra sandals last year, we are pleased to present a new and improved SS21 vegan variant. A palette combo of our ever-popular Bottle Green PU, finished with a subtle, yet luxe gold lining, the best thing about the material choice for these sandals is the durability of the upper. The embossed croc Eco Pu will hold its pattern and shine in a way that traditional leathers can't making it a more long wearing option for our long Summer months. Inspired by pared back nineties references, mixed with classic Roman proportions, we love the forever wearable feeling this silhouette maintains. Executed on a last that features a really interesting angled cut through the toe sole edge, giving them a sharpness and dressed up feel that can sometimes be lacking in an open shoe. A classic style, these sandals will never date, and with our extra thick 15mm memory foam padded insole board, you might never want to take them off either!

Bottle Green and Vegan? Yes! Created in response to our many vegan customers requests for a non-leather option in this style, the palette mix of a Bottle Green upper spliced against the luxe gold lining which adds a hint of 70s glamour. Regular customers will notice this is a heavier outsole than used on our other shoes and is designed for a more work-wear friendly mood. Sole edge has been painted black to create a more anchored look to the upper. Silver Buckles in a slightly oversized shape add an an almost ornamental feel to these beautiful sandals, and they now feature our R.Yes! branding.
The best time to wear sandals is when the feet have been ever so gently sun-kissed, right at the end of Summer. We love to wear these sandals pretty relaxed, with our oversized linens, denims and vintage outfits. They're also great for work with cropped flares and a sleeveless turtleneck to channel a more mid-nineties pared back appeal.
Up to 5%. Because the upper has been intentionally backed by a sturdy canvas facing to prevent stretch on the ankle straps, these beauties really will hold their shape for years to come.
PU is a highly durable material that is ideally suited to long wearing shoes. Embossed Croc PU is especially great at holding it's pattern and shine. For optimum care, we recommend and sell "Waproo Waterproofer" to protect your toe tappers from unexpected showers.

Polish your PU shoes around once a month and clean when necessary with a leather conditioner and soft rag to remove any dirt accumulated on your travels.
For extra special treatment, polishing can help renew shoes that have developed scratches or other signs of regular wear. Wax and cream polishes available from a local shoe repairer will breath new life into your beloved toe tappers. Once your newly polished shoes have dried you can re-apply a waterproof spray for extra protection.
